We’re back, talking in-depth with Illogic and Odd Nosdam, reporting on some new albums, a book and a podcast, and paying tribute to Shock G. Available at all fine podcast outlets, at weirdrap.com, or at youtube.com/weirdrap.

Starting with Nosdam, we get into his unique approach to hip hop production, his history with the divisive and groundbreaking collective Anticon, working with Serengeti and Circus of The Shape Shifters, and how he linked up with Illogic for their fantastic new EP, Right The Ship.

With Illogic, guest correspondent Beverly Fresh digs deep into the creative drives and processes of the thoughtful and prolific MC, discussing ways to navigate the choppy seas of contemporary society. They also talk about his podcast, Super Duty Tough Work, and more.

In the Patreon bonus episode Nosdam speaks about his Glass Cutters project with Jel, and he also gets into some behind-the-scenes celebrity intrigue that is simply too spicy for public consumption! Meanwhile Illogic relays some fascinating history around the Columbus OH hip hop scene, and talks about how he started working with Greenthink (Doseone and Why?). PLUS the pair has generously offered us an exclusive, unreleased track of theirs which is truly beautiful. $3/month gets you that, all past and future bonus episodes, and the Weird Rap Discussion Gang ‘After Hours’ episodes. $5 also gets you Weird Rap stickers and access to the weekly Weird Rap Discussion Gang live recordings (during which you can interact with us via text). patreon.com/weirdrap

We also get into a book/album report on Rhys Langston’s brilliant Language Arts Unit, some new albums by Serengeti (Curse Of The Polo) and Sharkula x Mukqs (Take Caution On The Beach), and a podcast recommendation (Dope KNife and Linqua Franqa’s Waiting On Reparations).

And we announce the arrival of the Weird Rap Radio Show (Sundays, 6pm Western/9 Eastern) on S.P.A.Z. Radio, a weekly hour of unique rap music presented by a rotating cast of hosts. (Archived at mixcloud.com/weirdrap.)

Finally, we pay our respects to OG weird rapper Shock G of Digital Underground. May he live on in peace and Humptiness forever.
